The Ottawa Titans Baseball Club announced on April 18 the signing of three players, including left-handed pitcher Tyler Jandron, right-handed pitcher Nelson Gonzalez, and catcher Ty Greene for the 2022 Frontier League season.

Jandron, 26, officially joins the Titans after being acquired in a trade earlier this off-season from the Pioneer League’s Missoula PaddleHeads.

The Negaunee, Michigan native went 1-5 with a 4.81 earned runs average (ERA) in 73 innings, striking out 64 in his third professional season with the Frontier League’s Joliet Slammers in 2021.

After starting his collegiate career at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Jandron transferred to Northwood University in 2017. The 6-foot-1-inch lefty is the all-time winningest pitcher in Northwood history, having gone 21-4 with a 2.41 ERA and earning Midwest Region Pitcher of the Year twice.

Following a successful collegiate career, the southpaw signed as a free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball (MLB) in 2018. Jandron appeared in 15 games, going 1-3 in 12.1 innings for the Missoula Osprey of the former affiliated Pioneer League.

Gonzalez, 32, brings a wealth of experience to the Titans bullpen after spending the last 14 seasons in the MLB's Colorado Rockies organization, reaching triple-A.

A native of San Cristobal, Dominican Republic, Gonzalez pitched in 22 games last season, going 4-0 with a 5.47 ERA, striking out 24 over 24 innings.

Greene, 24, spent the 2021 season in the Los Angeles Angels organization, playing 17 games split between A ball and A-advanced. A graduate of the University of California, Greene will enter his fourth season of professional baseball in 2022.

Drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 16th round of the 2018 MLB Draft, Greene was a third-generation catcher at Cal, following in the footsteps of his grandfather Ray and father Terry, who also suited up for the Golden Bears.

The Ottawa Titans are scheduled to hit the field in late spring of 2022 playing in the Frontier League, a partner league of the MLB.
